I did not.
I knew I would be listening to a webinar with Marco Vangelisti. (Also known as the fabulous painter, Marco Vangelisti).
Here you can see him in a youtube. (
He is an ex-wall street nice guy turned www.slowmoney.org genius.
He took the innards of my mind which have been swimming for a few years now in a brilliant and jumbled chaotic mess and made a presentation (of many of my exact thoughts) that was clear, to the point, easy to follow, dynamic and doable.
So Day One of My Finance Makeover begins right here.
Here are my My Day One Accomplishments:
#1) Investigated new banks. Made plan to change from old friend Wells Fargo.
(I’ll have to send thank you’s to the tellers for their service to me for the last 15 years, including giving me two little stuffed white horses as part of their gratitude to special customers like my mom who keeps a chunk there in our shared account -- two little stuffed horses that eventually became raggedy dog toys until finally their innards were completely eaten and the rest destroyed in the compost that feels like my entire backyard.)
#2) Download the past 90 days of all my account activity and highlight all auto transactions I will have to change to the new bank.
#3) Write Marco Vangelisti a thank you email for his amazing webinar.
Here are two more links, worth investigations.
Ciao for now!
